Six Row Brewing Company officially closed the doors on its Midtown taproom as of midnight last Saturday and revealed they won’t be at Heritage Fest this weekend. But this isn’t the last we’ve heard from them; the brewery is relocating its operations to an as-of-yet undisclosed location, reports Feast3690 Forest Park Ave, Midtown, sixrowbrewco.com

Raise a glass! Two STL restaurants have again made it onto The World of Fine Wine’s “World’s Best Wine Lists.” Truffles in Ladue received the highest ranking possible on the list, garnering three stars, a repeat of their standing in 2014. Also on the list this year is Annie Gunn’s, which won two of three stars, mirroring its 2014 performance. Truffles: 9202 Clayton Road, Ladue, 314.567.9100 & Annie Gunn’s: 16806 Chesterfield Airport Road, Chesterfield, 636.532.7684

It’s the season for summer festivals and the city of Clayton is taking part. On Saturday, June 20 from 4-10pm enjoy the very first Clayton Food & Wine Festival. Taking place on Carondelet Plaza, the public can enjoy free music and other live entertainment (wine bottle juggling anyone?), complimentary wine samples and food from surrounding restaurants, such as 801 Chophouse and Whitebox Eatery. Carondelet Plaza, Clayton

For anyone who’s been to Kingside Diner, the chess-themed restaurant in the CWE, but hasn’t been able to enjoy a brunch cocktail with the all-day breakfast menu, today that all changes. The restaurant owned by Herbie’s Vintage ’72’s Aaron Teitelbaum will finally be able to serve cocktails, wines and beers after receiving its liquor license. 4651 Maryland Ave., Central West End, 314.454.3957
